11 emerging and mid- career artists are featured in the second half of our summer show 24/7 (still life) remix
Our continuous access to images and the reproduction of those images has helped to aid and revise the definition of /and what a still life can be. In the last part of the 20th Century and early 21st Century, the genre has reached beyond the structure of what was once regarded by the art world as the “lowest genre” and moved into an exciting and more thought provoking realm.
24/7 (still life) is a re-imaging of the older structure that dealt heavily with the surface appearance of things. Much of the work in this show is not given over to the former ideal of beauty but instead informed by conceptually driven ideas.
